Balver Zinn Lead-Free Solder SN100CV®
BALVER ZINN SOLDER SN100CV® (SnBi1.5Cu0.7NiGe) is a patented version of the worldwide well-known solder SN100C® with the addition of bismuth. SN100CV® is like SN100C® a nickel-stabilized tin-copper solder, containing a small amount of germanium to reduce oxidation. The tensile strength of SN100CV® is approx. 30% higher compared to SN100C® and reaches even higher values than SAC305 because of the presence of bismuth. SN100CV® is a silver- and lead-free solder for high reliability applications. Compared with SN100C®, SN100CV® causes less copper dissolution that allows very stable processes and easy solder bath management. BALVER ZINN SOLDER SN100CV® is an invention of NIHON SUPERIOR® with patent number JP 5872114. BALVER ZINN is worldwide the first licensee and offers SN100CV® as bar, cored wire and solder paste.
